The last sentence is undoubtedly true.

But how "perverted" did Húrin become?
I see it as analogous to the difference between the much later falls of Saruman and Denethor.

When Húrin faced down Morgoth, his back was against the wall.

He had been captured while warring against Morgoth; his unbreakable loyalty was to the Noldor.
